Late afternoon on the coast

I took this shot at the north end of Tomales Bay about 10 minutes before and about 1/2 mile south from where I took the shot for yesterday’s post. The group of trees in the distance are the same as those in the previous post’s image. The ambient light hadn’t changed much during the time between taking the shots, but this one is angled 90 degrees away from rather than directly towards the sun. It’s less dramatic, but I like it nonetheless.

At an Irish seisiún

A friend of mine leads a local Irish seisiún. I don’t join in because they already have enough guitar players (I know all the seisiún players reading this are thinking, “what a guy!” ;^). Anyway, Maggie and I went last night to hang out, drink a few pints and enjoy the music. I brought my G11 and at some point took this close-up hoping that something would be in focus–low light plus an Irish jig means most everything is going to blur. That the drink is the sharpest thing in the shot is an irony I couldn’t let slip by.

Two shots today

During today’s commute home, I did “quick” pullout just before the toll plaza at the Golden Gate Bridge. Because of the dynamic look of the clouds I really wanted to get close to the bridge, but, unfortunately, that wasn’t going to happen. It took me ten minutes to get out of the one way, jammed full plaza parking lot. These shots were taken down the road towards Crissy Field where there was abundant parking space and very few tourists.
